National Thank a Mailman Day

05 Feb

Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

keeping his paws on the nuts of the world –

Friends, yesterday February 4th was National Thank a Mailman Day.  But the mailman doesn’t run on Sundays.  So we need to make sure we acknowledge them today.  Do you hear that pups? That means don’t chase the mailman on this date! Instead of chasing the mailman, today gives you a chance to say thank you. They deliver the mail six days a week regardless of the weather either by postal truck and walking routes. Do you remember the old Pony Express motto? “Neither rain, nor snow, nor death of the night, can keep us from our duty!” This motto is believed to be taken in part from a motto dating back to ancient times! You also hear it this way some times, “Through rain or snow, or sleet or hail, we’ll carry the mail. We will not fail.”

So pets near and far away, go sit by the mailbox today. Maybe bring a bone and give it to the mailman. Tell him thank you.

    Mailmen/women have a contest every year to see who can deliver mail all year round in shorts! Boy are they nuts, and some actually do it! Crazy Mailpeople! I admire their red cold legs! lol..

    Is barking saying thank you?

      I guess it could in a way. A short bark – not a rampaging I’m going to take your leg off bark. Keep it short my friend. Snorts and rolls with piggy laughter. XOXO – Bacon

    No way am I sitting in our cold garage waiting for the mail lady to drop the bills. Outside is too deep with snow so you say a few words to your mail lady from Canada…like they are far too slow with packages. hehe

    Once our mom opens the door, we are all over the mail lady. In a good way, mind you.

        There’s a mad rush to see who can lean against her first. 😆


This piggy would love to snort with you :)
